    Work has commenced on an electric line upgrade in the Hessenauer Subdivision.  As the Electric Line Department moves to get the outdated transformers and wiring changed over to the new system, there will be periodic outages, some for up to two hours.

    Please expect to see Line Department employees and their equipment in the area, including on both public and private properties. 

    The work is expected to be completed in one week.

    Mosquito Spraying

    Mosquito spraying will be taking place on Thursday and Friday of this week if conditions are favorable.  Spraying will begin at dusk and should be completed by 11:00 p.m.  

    Mosquito spray poses low risk, but the following are some common sense steps to reduce exposure:
    -close windows and doors during the time of fogging
    -remain inside while fogging takes place
    -bring pets inside
    -turn air conditioning off or to recirculate

    Please call the city building at 419-468-1857 with questions.
